I LOVE to dye fabrics. I took my first workshop nearly seven years ago; and several friends (some who'd taken the workshop, others who wished they had) got together, and we've been dyeing together and separately ever since. I wish I sewed fast enough to keep up with my output, but I give away a lot of what I dye.
Here are some initial pix of my supplies:
Melody Johnson, says she doesn't use it; and sometimes I use it and sometimes I don't.) I want to play with salt this weekend because it produces interesting effects on newly dyed fabric, so I have two kinds of salts. The plastic trays are dental trays that were being discarded at work. They are good portable workspaces.
Here is a shot of the fabric I dyed on Sunday while soaking:
Then washed out (that's cotton chenille yarn):
Then, this morning, I splashed some red dye on the fabric:
This is going somewhere, I promise.
Finally, as I was typing this, I had a buddy, the baby brat cat.
